Wenz-Gross, Melodie; Siperstein, Gary N.
Exceptional Children, v63 n2 p183-93 Win 1997
This study of 40 children with learning disabilities or mild cognitive delays and 66 children without disabilities (grades 4-6) examined social networks, social supports, friendships, and adjustment. Results indicated that, compared to nondisabled children, the children with learning problems turned to their family less for problem-solving support and to peers less for all types of support.
